Release into the wild

Who: Ronnie
Where: Her new house
When: late morning

There was no false relief this time when she awoke to gentle ocean sounds, curled in an intimately comfortable bed. Ronnie's mind was forcing away even the room for such feelings to exist at this point, so when she woke it was with a tired sort of acceptance. She didn't bother getting out of bed for some time, just laying curled up and watching her computers for the flash and chime of unanswered messages. When one came, it wasn't from the terminals, and that was enough to draw Ronnie from under the covers.

journal entry around 2pm

Hey guys, I finally got up here, took me long enough, and then it was pretty anticlimactic. No idea what I expected or anything, but yeah. Just...house. My stuff. I guess this is my house now? Anyways, I just wanted to know if anyone wanted to go out with me. Look around town, all that, since I didn't get a chance before, and y'know, everything was pretty boarded up. Is it still boarded up? Does anyone know?

Do we want to check on people who might not have come up yet? I've been kinda thinking about it...but I don't know where people are yet, I have this map but I don't know. Where does concern for people's safety kinda clash with privacy? Anyone got any opinions on this?

And where are my girls? Where are my guys? Please tell me people are out there, and I didn't come up to a world where I'm alone.


new house


who: Cheyenne
where: her new house
when: afternoon

Cheyenne had realized there was an elevator a while back. Really it was hard to miss, since her area was kind of enclosed, and there hadn't been a shiny metal elevator door just hanging out there yesterday in one of the walls. But it was there now. It had just taken her a long time to actually get herself to venture up. When she finally did, she felt embarrassed, silly.


Who: Stan and open!
Where: Roaming the streets in the snow!
When: Late morning


Date: Sunday, October 13th 2008

Weather: The weather is overcast and cold, but there isn't any snow in the air, and the wind is only a light breeze if there's any wind at all.

Events: Today, everyone wakes up where they went to sleep last night. The only difference is there is now an accessible elevator. This elevator is small, and only has limited buttons on the inside. Up, down and stop. The elevator is located someplace where it was out of the way or inaccessible before. For example, the front door of the apartment/home that didn't open yesterday? Opens today to reveal the elevator. There are no messages from the scientists, no indication anyone should do anything, and all locks/etc have been removed from the rooms, as well as any damage/etc that may have occurred.

Upon stepping into the elevator, the up button will light up, and if pressed, will start a long journey. The ride is over five minutes long, and comes up in the home of the participant. Where it comes up in their home is up to you, likely someplace out of the way. All participants have been given homes, located on the map. The streets have been plowed, the town has been re-opened for habitation. No one's working the shops, but they've been filled back up again. All houses come stocked with food/medicine/possessions/etc.

Note: All participants are back in their original houses--anyone who moved has been placed back where they were originally. Check the map here.

If you have any events or anything going on which you think warrants a mention in the time update, please let us know!
